Hurrle wins Top C.A.T. award in volleyball

Molly Hurrle of Kimball, was presented with the Top C.A.T. award on her Advanced Setting court of the S.P.I.K.E. Performance Camp held in mid-July at Monticello High School in Monticello. The award goes to athletes who exhibit the best combination of Communication, Attitude, and Technical skills (C.A.T.). It is awarded at the sole discretion of the camp coaches.

Vic Spadaccini, camp director said, "This is a physically demanding and mentally challenging camp. The coaches take this award very seriously. Molly was competing with athletes from around the country. She made a strong impression on the coaches the very first morning. She earned the award with her hard work, excellent court communication skills, great attitude, and good technical skills. All the coaches would like to see her back next year to defend her title."

S.P.I.K.E. Performance Camps is one of the premier girls volleyball camps in the Midwest. Athletes from around the world from as far away as Japan have attended. Among the 16 coaches from around the country who worked the camp, three are collegiate head coaches and four are collegiate assistant coaches. Former professional players, collegiate players, or high school coaches assist the Court Head Coaches. The camp has sessions for players of all levels, from experienced beginners to collegiate-bound just-graduated seniors.

Molly is the daughter of Stella and John Hurrle of Kimball.
